Texas Counts Strategy

Texas Counts is a state-wide collaborative effort working to engage cross-sector leaders and organizations to leverage, amplify, and share resources to help get out the count in Texas by leveraging resources and providing strategic, coordinated support and targeted funding to ensure all Texans are counted in the 2020 Census. Texas Counts serves a partner, connector, and hub for “get out the count” efforts in Texas. 

Our Vision

Every Texan is counted in the 2020 Census to ensure that our state receives the congressional representation, the funding, and the information we need to thrive for the next decade.

Our Goal

Our goal is to help increase the count in hard-to-count areas of Texas and hard-to-count populations by providing strategic, coordinated assistance and targeted funding to ensure all Texans are counted in the 2020 Census.

Our Strategy 

Texas Counts is a coordinated cross-sector effort that provides support to “get out the count” efforts through the Texas Counts Campaign and Texas Counts Pooled Fund. Our belief is that this statewide coordination will provide critical support for existing efforts and further enhance our ability to reach our hardest to count populations.
